Happy Heart Day

I know, for some, today's holiday wants to make you gag. But I for one really enjoy Valentines Day. Not for the mushy love stuff but for the fun kid stuff, valentines cards, boxes, & candy! As a scrapper I get giddy thinking of pulling out my stamps and scrap stash to make one of a kind unique cards for my kids to pass out...WRONG! They won't have anything to do with a homemade valentine, I have lost the battle to Spongebob, Ninja Turtles, & Dora-sigh!

BUT this year was different! I had all but given up hope to create valentines for my kids that didn't include some sort of cartoon character, until I suggested to my oldest son that we buy this fun "pop rock" candy and make some cool "rocker" valentines to go with it. To my udder amazement he said "yeah". Now this wasn't just a blah "yeah" but an enthusiastic "yeah!" Woohoo!!

Well as some of you who know me well, know that Photoshop has not always been my friend. I'm slowly learning the ropes though. I wanted to create a Valentine that would be "cool" enough for a 10 year old boy to pass out, and this is what I came up with. I was pretty proud of myself I have to say. maybe I'm getting this PSE thing down! Double Woohoo!

That is one of the coolest ideas I have ever seen! Boy Valentines can be so hard to deal with. I'm saving this idea for next year!
